Experience the thrill of flying a Boeing or Airbus jet.

Book a VA Airline Flight Simulator Experience and you’ll not only get to see how airline pilots are trained, but you’ll also get to fly a multi-million pound flight simulator for real.

You’ll fly as a ‘Co-pilot’ with one of our experienced instructors (who fly for major airlines such as British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair) as your Captain.

You will get to takeoff and land after receiving some simple but expert tuition. Once you’ve mastered the basics of flying we will show you how the aircraft systems work and how airlines use the automatic pilot to land in bad weather and into some very exciting airports.

Mark, our instructor, was totally competent and very knowledgable - a pleasure to spend time with! The actual time spent was conducted in a professional manner and the actual flight time and training was totally enjoyable and a real eye opener with regards to just how hard these pilots work when flying for real. I was completely spent at the end of the 2 hour session! They have earned a new level of respect from me.

What an amazing experience! We bought this flight sim experience for our 17 year son, but we all went along as a family and really enjoyed it. The whole thing is so realistic and brings home the skill and ability of the people who pilot these machines. Our instructor was so nice and so reassuring about the whole thing, while still keeping it technical and ‘real’.
— Lisa Coleman
An unbelievably fantastic experience, tailored to each individuals expectations and previous experience. Educational in all aspects, and great fun at the same time. The smile we are all wearing will last for weeks to come!
— Nigel Willson
A wonderful experience for young budding pilots. Welcoming and knowledgable staff make the simulator experience extremely enjoyable. Highly recommended for anyone who would love to fly whatever your age.
